Sewing group to have workshop

The Two Ridges Sewing Group of the Wintersville and Steubenville area met in May at Two Ridges Presbyterian Church in Wintersville with Jean Smith, leader, welcoming members and guests. There were 12 in attendance.

During the show and tell segment, Jean Renard displayed mug and cup potholders for which patterns were distributed. Carol Village displayed a cobbler's apron of oriental print to be sent to the Pearl S. Buck gift shop in Hillsboro, W.Va. Barb Smith displayed ruffled scarves in an array of colors.

It was suggested to make catheter bag covers and walker tote bags for the Dixon Health Care Center in Wintersville. Fabrics will be purchased, and members will work on these at the June meeting, which will be a workshop. Members were treated to a free fabric and pattern assortment provided by a guest. Members were reminded of the covered-dish picnic in July and the Amish play in September. For information on the group, contact Smith at (740) 282-3669.
